I'm hoping to ask for your help from the local experts one more time! Planning a second trip to NYC Dec 23 - Dec 26. Have tickets to see the Christmas Spectacular at RCMH on Dec 25 at 1:00pm. Had planned to stay at the Hilton Garden Inn since the rate I saw on their website was $199 per night (and could cancel.) Went to book and that was only the first night, $369 for the other two nights. So I'm rethinking my hotel. Am looking for somewhere maybe less than 1 mile (that's not set in stone) from RCMH/Rockefeller Plaza (it will be colder and would like to walk to the show, tree, shopping, skating, Christmas markets etc .) Would like to spend $400 or less (before tax). King room at least 300 sq ft. The problem is my hubby would really like a decent gym to work out at. I kind of like a boutique type hotel, but would be happy with a modern place that's newer. Am looking at the Intercontinental Times Square, the Michelangelo, Renaissance Times Square, and the Irqoquis. Open to any other ideas. Would you all mind giving me your opinions? Have read the reviews and am just trying to figure out a good place. It's Christmas and would like something nice.... (I checked the Palace and others and they were a bit too pricey.) Thank you!!
